Visiting Medical Students


We participate in the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) portal for away elective applications.  If your school does not participate in the VSLO portal, then we will not be able to accommodate your application. We are no longer processing paper applications.  

Students who have already earned the equivalent of the MD degree at the time of application or by the time of the start date of the elective are not eligible to apply. 

LSU Health Shreveport Visiting Student policy can be found here.

Caribbean Visiting Medical Students, if your school has an approved affiliation agreement with LSUHSC - Shreveport, please email for instructions on applying.

Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport welcomes students from diverse backgrounds from the Class of 2023 to apply for elective rotations. Students will be matched with a faculty and/or resident advisor during the rotation to provide mentorship and networking opportunities. We are providing housing and a meal stipend to qualified students to help defray the cost of an away rotation. Women are defined as underrepresented for: General Surgery, Urology, Interventional Radiology, Diagnostic Radiology, Anesthesiology, Otolaryngology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Cardiology, Pulmonary Diseases, and Gastroenterology.
